ROCKSPRINGS — More than 50 faculty and staff members with Meigs Local School District are taking part in the “PULSE” Wellness Challenge as part of the PEP Grant Project.
The Carol M. White Physical Education Program (PEP) grant provides more than $1 million for the district’s physical education and fitness programs over the next three years.
The Meigs Wellness Committee and the PEP Grant Project team are working together to promote the challenge.
According to Jillian Brannon PEP Grant Social Marketing Coordinator said the goal of the challenge is “to help employees lead healthier lifestyles by having equipment readily available for their use at their convenience.”
Employees participating were placed on teams, and prizes will be awarded to the teams who have the most number of times using the center between Jan. 6 and Feb. 16.
“We are very excited and happy with the number of employees who want to get involved and are eager to see the progress each person makes by the end of the challenge,” said Brannon.
The fitness center, which is located on the Meigs High School campus, is open to Meigs Local faculty, staff and their families after school or with the use of a swipe card.
